The New Vision Group

Makerere University Faculty of Computing and IT reached an understanding with The New Vision Group to support the ICT initiatives. Initially the Faculty will develop applications that are urgently required by the company. The projects being undertaken are in line with the current industry needs and have a high potential for replication in similar businesses. Such projects include:

  • Pre-Press Computer to Printer System - Involves CIT providing human resource to understudy the functionality of the system. This is intended to provide a pool of people who understand the system and can be called upon anytime to provide backup manpower. Three students were trained on the system for one week in June 2008. Further instructions are expected from the CEO after a training completion report has been submitted. Meeting with the CEO has been scheduled to kick start full implementation of the project.
  • Count Sensor for the Newspaper Print Machine - The project involves establishment of the requirements to introduce a sensor component to the current counter system. The project will include current system study and identification of interface points where the developed sensor will be added. One PhD Student and two MSc students have been engaged under the supervision of Dr. Idris A. Rai. Required Components are to be procured from The Netherlands.
  • Workflow Process Management System - This project is expected to cover all work processes at the New Vision. It will automate the workflow procedures currently monitored manually. A meeting was held on 28th August 2008 in which it was agreed that work begins 8th September 2008. However the project has not commenced because New Vision was procuring new systems that are critical in implementation of this project. We have received notification that the different installations have been completed and we await confirmation in regards to commencement.
